as we gather, this morning, to worship You,
I feel that we are still coming up short.
Nothing that we do or offer seems sufficient
given Your holiness and amazing love.
Nothing seems enough
given Your grace and faithfulness.
We may have the intention to show You great devotion
but way too often You get our leftovers.
Way too often we examine our needs now
so we may determine what we can afford to give You later.
Oh God, holy Father,
may our devotion be wholly on You;
giving You the first fruits of all we have,
those first fruits came from You.
May our sacrifices be worthy of You.
May our devotion be wholly true.
All praise, worship, honor
be given to You,
through Christ Jesus our Lord,
God bless you as you praise and worship our awesome God!
